Book Review #1309
Rock On: A story of Guitars, Gigs, Girls, and a Brother (Not Necessarily in that Order) by Denise Vega
Rating: one star (out of four)
I read over 40 pages of this novel before deciding to put it down. I wasn’t a big fan of the main character and felt that he was whiney and slightly obnoxious. The formatting of the book was kind of cool and I thought the designers did a nice job with the websites and graphics. But I did think most of the dialogue and website posts/blog entries were juvenile and felted fake. I also didn’t like the characters and felt there struggles were uninteresting. Based on the initial chapters I had read I decided I didn't want to devote any more time to this book, it just wasn't my type.
